Hong Kong, 17 April 2019 – EverCarat, the first global diamond-trading platform powered by blockchain and exchange technology, has formed a strategic partnership with Fulbright Bullion, to provide top-grade diamonds to its high-net-worth clients, enhancing both diversification and wealth protection in their portfolios.

Through EverCarat platform, customers can view their diamond holdings, both digitally and physically, at the secured vaulting facility in Hong Kong.
Zulu Sureshkumar Ghevriya, Founding Member of the HK Indian Diamond Association, said: “With EverCarat’s blockchain technology, the entire journey from suppliers, through GIA’s double verification and sealing, physical custody to delivery is now unprecedentedly transparent and key to building public trust in investment in diamonds.”
Mr. Rico Tang, Founder and CEO of AssetOnChain, said: “Hong Kong’s simple tax system and mature financial infrastructure allow dealers to trade diamonds at a lower cost. At the same time, our blockchain-powered trading platform provides improved price transparency, market liquidity and trust. The partnership with institutional investors, such as Fulbright Bullion, represents a big step forward in transforming diamond into a new asset class.”
EverCarat allows investors and dealers to take advantage of the immense opportunity offered by investing and trading in diamonds. The global trading volume of polished diamonds has reached USD25 billion. In 2017, demand from the China market (including Hong Kong and Macau) made it the second-largest market in the world, further consolidating its status as a trading centre for diamonds.
